A Paul G. Allen initiative, the Allen Distinguished Educators award program recognizes and rewards teachers who “break the mold” of traditional schooling to provide students with opportunities to become thinkers, makers, and creators through computer science, engineering, and entrepreneurship. These are the teachers we celebrate, the ones whose stories we tell, and whose ideas and experiences we share in the hope that others will be inspired by their example.
